Lawn Mower Scooter Sort Of Like A Segway For Yard Work

It looks like something your child might covet. But it is, in fact, a toy for adults, and a pretty practical one at that; the lawnmower scooter concept by Vicky Petihovski.

Conceived of as a kind of riding lawnmower for those with small yards, the lawn mower scooter makes use of an electric motor, so you’ll never have to lug around that stinky old gas can. Yanko Design reports that all cuttings are saved in the transparent bin in the front, where they can easily be added to your compost–and with a footprint this small, you may not even need to break out the weed-wacker for those hard-to-reach areas of your yard.

Of course, it looks pretty cool, too–so this may be the perfect incentive for your child to actually earn that allowance. (Just make sure he or she doesn’t take off with it down the sidewalk.)
